Michigan Teacher of the Year Nominee

Best-Selling Author of “The Burnout Cure”

Chase Mielke is an award-winning educator, writer, and speaker focusing on preventing teacher burnout and increasing student engagement.

He has been awarded multiple honors, including being a Michigan Teacher of the Year nominee and an Allegan County “Outstanding People for Education” recipient. For his work minimizing the achievement gap with at-risk high schoolers, his Positive Psychology program received a Michigan Association of School Administrators’ “Winner’s Circle Award.” The program teaches concepts of positive emotion, engagement, meaning, and accomplishment to hundreds of students each year, especially at-risk high schoolers. Consistently, students reduce failure rates by at least 50% each year.

In addition to modeling excellence as an educator, his writing has been featured on WeAreTeachers, Huffpost, Edutopia, and EdPost. He received a WordPress “Freshly Pressed” distinction for his viral blog and video “What Students Really Need to Hear,” which has been used across the world to motivate students.

As an engaging, nationally recognized speaker, he has traveled across the nation and world to speak with students and educators on topics of resilience, mindset, applied neuroscience, and positive psychology.

“If you haven’t yet experienced a Chase Mielke virtual professional development...I  HIGHLY recommend it. It's a powerful and timely message.”
Amy Hendry, Principal of Carter Middle School
“Chase engaged our audience with meaningful stories to drive home the key messages of his presentation. The audience was both challenged and affirmed and his humor added a fun dimension to his keynote speech. His credibility to speak about education is through the roof. Chase is professional, collaborative, and a tremendous advocate for teachers and teaching.”
John S., Systems Change Conference Organizer
“Chase was able to get at the heart of change in his keynote speech. I don’t believe inspiring and motivating are strong enough words for the impact he truly had on everyone in attendance. All of the attendees were engaged and walked away ready to take on the challenges they face.”
Cindy Schumacher, Executive Director
